Latest Frank Beamer Items
Monday's attack at the Boston Marathon served as another kick in the stomach, a reminder we can never get too comfortable. Any time. Anywhere.
Coach Frank Beamer and his staff felt like they have had their class of 18 recruits wrapped up for some time, and even their worst season in 20 years followed by wholesale changes to his offensive coaching staff didn't cost the Hokies players they wanted.
Something was missing.
A trip to Florida hasn't moved the Virginia Tech football program away from rumors that changes will be made to the coaching staff after this week's bowl game.
Logan Thomas didn't live up to expectations during his junior season Virginia Tech's football team, but that hasn't squelched chatter that the Hokies' quarterback might leave school early for the NFL.
Miami chose to stay home, self-imposing a bowl ban for the second straight year in the hopes of staving off more drastic punishments later on.
Logan Thomas threw for two touchdowns — the second a 7-yarder to Randall Dunn in overtime — and ran for another score to help Virginia Tech keep its bowl hopes alive with a 30-23 comeback win over Boston College on Saturday.
By his own admission, Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer can't pinpoint one primary weakness that has held back the Hokies' sputtering offense this season.
Stephen Morris threw for two early touchdowns, both set up by Virginia Tech special-teams miscues, and Miami took a step forward in the chase for the ACC's Coastal Division title by beating the Hokies 30-12 on Thursday night.
